as far as not knowing how others will react to her kids not knowing what the other kids know, or being able to read like the other kids can. My oldest ds is 12 and I have always felt like I needed to make excuses for his handwriting. He writes like a 4 yo! LOL! He's gettng neater and all though, thank goodness. It was just that when he first started doing any academic stuff at all he was a natural reader. He loved books and he read everything he could get his hands on (still does). Plus, he was good at math. He loved to build things, he loved to play, climb, dream, etc. He just seemed like he just absorbed knowledge. So I figured, why make him write things out and struggle when his time might be better spent continuing to absorb things like he did? So we didn't even slightly push the writing. Now he seems like he is "behind" in handwriting. But he is gradually getting better :-) So I am glad that we let him continue to have his (as someone put it) "delight-driven" learning time. If he can learn to get what's in his head, down the length of his arm, and out those fingers he'll be a great writer someday, I'm sure ;-)

Once the folks at church and Bible study found out how bright he is, and what a love for the Word he has, and what knowledge and understanding he's been blessed with they can look over the handwriting easier. They may not can read what he writes, but they know he knows what he means anyway! LOL!

I do admire you for helping this family out in this, dj. I know I have appreciated the understanding folks who have dealt with my dc :-)
